And no, I still don’t put the apostrophe in the wrong place, for those who’re wondering.
This year’s Mothers’ Day post demonstrated just how little bmom’s kids actually mean to her, given that she told the two of her kids who were visiting her for Mothers’ Day that she’d told her husband not to tell any of us if anything happens to her ’cause none of us go up there to see her. Yup, go figure the logic there – I obviously get my brains from my dad’s side. :p
Fathers’ Day today seems to’ve pulled off similar, too, though.
I’ve been left feeling kinda deflated, if entirely and utterly unsurprised, really.
Not that I know for sure where communications broke down yet, only that I didn’t get communicated with as promised, despite me waiting somewhere until communications were established. I gave up at nine pm -ish and came home.

And this is why newborn
abduction adoption sucks so damn much! Babies NEED their moms, simple as.
Oh dear. I really do feel bad for the adoption workers who were so careless as to lose their access to their kids, but obviously they must have done something terrible to have that happen. It is obviously and undoubtedly In the Best Interests of the Children that they remain with the birthmothers, who can offer these children far more security than the careless adoption workers have clearly previously managed to provide for them.
Those lucky lucky children!

“Birthmothers” retaliate, kidnap children of adoption workers
RECEIVING COUNTRIES, May 5, 2008 (Impoverished Women’s News) — A self-identified group of “birthmothers” retaliated against the adoption industry early Monday morning, kidnapping thousands of children of adoption agency workers at traditional shopping malls worldwide.
In major metropolitan centers around the world where children of impoverished women were sent for adoption, the children of middle-class adoption workers went missing, and adoption agency buildings were looted and burned in simultaneous, apparently timed, attacks.
“We are holding the children at a safe but undisclosed location,” said a spokeswoman for the the group claiming responsibility. “Adoption workers who wish to know where their children are being held may apply to our search process, but they should know that we do get many requests and we are very, very busy so they have to be patient,” said the woman who spoke through a translator.
The armed group…

Reposting for posterity, because I think the links are so very much worthy. :)
[7rin] loves being on the Answer hidden due to its low rating list so hilariously often, and with such fantastically good company. :D
The question the base link in the post pointed at is: “So what exactly is my alternative to adoption in my situation?” over @ http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100824044336AA5ZbRu
Answer of the century award goes to Tish however, for her reply on the What makes someone a mother? question asked over @ http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100823193059AAxG6Px

What makes someone a mother?
Another poster on Y!A said this:
“The act of pushing out a baby does not make someone a mother.”
So what does?
tish_part deux‘s reply:
so…since the act of pushing out a baby doesn’t make one a mother, why the need for non-pushers to be on BIRTH certificates?
speaking of “birthing” these are the same folk who believe ALL BABIES have two mommy’s: a birthmother and a “real” forever family mother…
the idea that some mothers actually can become such without the use of another woman’s womb, is lost on some of these folks.
also, since the act of pushing out a baby is so diminished in the continuum of “mothering” they why do people spend gazillions of dollars to get knocked up in a lab, just to “push out a baby.”
personally, i have always thought that the “pushing out a baby doesn’t…’ banter was most often rhetoric from those who CAN’T PUSH…
i also find that those who can’t push, try to shift the “mother” definition to control for the ONLY variable which excludes them: the ability to conceive, gestated, and give birth to the child they are “mothering..”
so, i’ll try this:
a mother is one who:
conceived a child
gestated a child
birthed a child
nursed/nurtured a child
raised a child
loved a child
3/6==good enough, mom
2/6==try much harder, mom
1/6==give it up, mom
SUPERMOM who conceived, gestated, pushed, nursed, and raised my own children.
